Sorry ladies but another spotting thread :(


Hiya. I am 6 weeks today and on Sunday evening I thought I noticed the smallest peachy sort of tinge when I wiped just before bed but thought nothing of it. Last night though, again just before bed, I had pink on the toilet paper when I wiped. I put a pad on for bedtime and this morning there was nothing on it but again I am having pink when I wipe. Not enough to come on pad/knickers but there kind of every other time I go for a wee.

I had an ectopic in July last year and although my hcg results for this pregnancy have been good, I can't help but think the worse. I am waiting for the epu to call me back with when I can get an emergency scan. I was already waiting for an early scan anyway but I really want it sorted asap. I'd just like to know either way.

If it turns out everything is ok then I am going to chuck the white toilet roll and get some pink toilet roll instead

Thanks ladies, I am getting hacked off with the local epu. They know I am high risk for an ectopic plus they already have the referral for an early scan that my doctor sent last week... however because I now need an 'emergency scan' they said my doctor needs to ring them to arrange it. What a load of faffing around. So I have had to call my doctors to get a message to my doctor to call me, just so that I can tell her to call the epu to sort my scan! Why oh why they couldn't just take my word for it I don't know

On the up side I haven't had anything when wiping for a good hour or so now (and believe me I have checked alot! Think I should stop wiping incase I make myself sore!) so a tiny part of me thinks it might just be beany snuggling in... but more of me thinks it is the start of something bad. I have always been a bit of a glass half empty lady!

I'm too scared to move at the minute. Hope to God it is all ok but have been worried the last few days due to very little in the way of sickness or anything.. just slightly sore boobs and a bit of an achey back really. I need to stop over thinking it all probably. The hardest part is knowing that what will be will be - nothing we can do is there!

Well they have decided I am not an emergency and that they are just too busy what with all the bank holidays unless I am in pain - I am not - so I am to wait till 11.25am on Thursday. If anything changes (increased bleeding or cramping) I am to call back. So far it seems to have stopped though..

I try to think positive but then I didn't have any pain with my ectopic last year and I don't seem to notice pain much in general - I either have a high pain threshold or I am just a bit numb!

So sorry gingerwhinger! Try to relax, I had the same at 6 weeks, all was fine with a scan. At 6 weeks the placenta is implanting/burrowing, whatever it does, and spotting can occur. See what medical advice you can get, I know you are trying real hard. It reassured me. Sorry about your stress. Niot fun, but not the end either.
